Kris Jenner and Ben Flajnik are becoming the ‘will they-won’t they’ couple of the year! While Ben claims they are just ‘friends’ in a new interview, a report declares that they are more like friends with benefits!
We saw Ben Flajnik sitting next to Kris Jenner at Kanye West‘s concert on Oct. 23 in Oakland, Cali. The 31-year-old Bachelor has been posting pics with Kris and he’s admitted that he’s been borrowing the 58-year-old momager’s car. So what’s really going on?
Kris Jenner & Ben Flajnik’s Romance Details Revealed
“Keeping up with the sonomans,” Ben captioned a pic with Kris and Jonathan Cheben on Sept. 28. While Kris didn’t announce her split with husband Bruce Jenner until October 8, they had been separated for a year — so maybe she was romancing Ben, then?
“I extended a warm welcome up to the winery and shot an episode of the Kardashians with her and Jonathan,” he told People magazine after posting the pic, adding that she is a “dear friend.” However, that’s not what a new report says.
Kris was “so into him,” an insider told the mag. She brought Ben to three of Kanye’s shows, and has reportedly been footing the bill. “She’s been taking him everywhere and paying for everything — total sugar mama.”
Ben Flajnik Frustrated With Rumors: We’re Business Partners
When Ben was spotted driving Kris’ Bentley on Oct. 26 in Huntington Beach, Cali. (while she was away in Las Vegas), the rumors continued.
“Ben was telling people that Kris said he could use the car for the weekend,” a source told Us. “He said they were working together on a project.” The fact that he later confirmed to People.
“I happened to be in L.A. and I didn’t have a car, so she let me borrow hers. She wasn’t even there,” Ben told People. “Her assistant opened up the garage and just said, ‘Pick one.’ We have some really great things in the works, and this is frustrating because it’s not the light I wanted shed on our projects.”
He also added that Kris “understands” his frustrations.
“It is like you can’t do anything without people thinking you’re hooking up or in a relationship,” he told People. “It comes up a lot. I can handle it one person at a time, but when people write articles it is more difficult. She’s a beautiful, smart woman, but we’re friends. We talked this morning and she said, ‘Hey, don’t worry.’ She understands why I’m upset and uncomfortable with [the reports.] She deals with this kind of thing on a daily basis, and I’ve worked really hard to stay away from this kind of image.”
So, HollywoodLifers — what do you think? Are they just friends or friends with benefits?
